    About Local chat

    Will Local Chat be...."local"...?

    Now it's almost a global chat. A bit better, but not what it should.

    We need a local chat with a small reach, to play well. Maybe around 15 meter... Not 1,5 Km


    I know, fix lag its more important, but I would like to know if this will be done..And if it will be done soon

    I remember them saying they would remove global and make local more restrictive. I think they still have local to attend to...at least hope so
    The truth will set you free....but first it will realy piss you off !!

    I agree that local chat needs to be "local". I'm hearing conversations that are very far from me and really, what's the point? 15 meters is probably too restrictive, I'm thinking about a quarter zone so I believe that would be 256 squared meters. Even smaller would be fine.
    If someone in local is spouting nonsense they think is funny, they should be close so I can kill them.

    Pretty sure I read somewhere local chat will be reduced. Any confirmations/links anybody?

    How far could you realistically communicate with someone via sound? 100m? 200? 300 meters?
    9 zones is pretty ridiculous to expect everyone in those zones to have good manners about.

    Specifically people are just too lazy, or the game is not set up right, for people to constantly type /w nameA blahblahblah and /w nameB ablabhlbah. and /s blahblahblah /t blahblah.
    I don't mind, because I usually consider the fact I might be pissing off a ton of people when I speak in /s no matter what I say.
    But clearly for the average person the system is cumbersome at best, and at worst encourages chat spam.

    Too many threads all exactly the same.

    Yes local chat as it stands is badly broken and the actual description of how communication should work in game is on the features page.
